Forum: software Subject: Tonic Trouble (Demo) (19981001) False Positive

I uploaded a demo of Tonic Trouble today (https://archive.org/details/TonicTroubleDemo19981001), and after it was uploaded it was immediately taken down. I believe this is because the EXE was erroneously detected as being malware due to UbiSoft encrypting it. Please could you reinstate the download?

Had the same problem earlier when I uploaded CCleaner, which I downloaded from the official website:

Seems it runs all files through VirusTotal to see if they're malware, and if it's detected by any of the antivirus programs, it gets made dark. Which is unfortunate, since some of the programs it checks against (and the ones which frequently have the false positives) are not the best quality AV programs. Mine was OK'ed by 66 programs, including McAfee, Symantec, Kaspersky and TrendMicro, but flagged by Cyren and ESET-NOD32 (who??).

Would be nice if I could get my item back, but it's probably been flushed from their servers, along with all the work I did inputting metadata, etc.
